Unfortunately the XC was cancelled because the ground was too wet so they ran it as a combined training competition. We did the 70-85cm class as it would have been her first time XC this season.

Poor Shadow was a bit tired because she's been out the last 2 nights and we hacked on the downs yesterday! Dressage test was prelim 4 and she went well but just not very forward. Went over to the SJ and she found her energy and flew round clear!

Waited for the results and we got 38.2 dressage and came 2nd out of about 20 so I was very pleased! Just want to go XC now!!

Well done you guys, I was pleased with my horse in the 75 - 85cm but we still managed to come last in our section. We were very nsughty but forward in dressage and tried to nap and reared at the gateway still got 45. Then SJ was def not a pretty round and she stopped at number 3 twice but didn't bat an eye at the spooky SJ fillers. We got something like 31 penalties in the SJ oops.
